Aztec human skull tower discovered in Mexico

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

Dozens of skulls have been found by archaeologists digging near an Aztec temple close to Mexico City.

The 119 skulls made up part of a tower of heads of sacrificed humans kept as a trophy by the pre-Columbian civilisation, experts have said.

The rack of skulls were found as part of five-year dig under old buildings near the city's Templo Mayor Aztec ruins, which has so far found a total of 603 skulls.

It is thought they date to between 1486 and 1502.

"What to do on a dull Sunday afternoon", Aztec style:

"Lets go stack some skulls".
